Hey I have two magniflow 360 canister filter from marineland, I was wandering if it will be to much to run both of them in my 54 gallon corner tank? Just want to get some use out of both of them instead of one going to waste, and I do plan on overstocking the tank just a little since i have African cichlids, just heard that the more cichlids you have the better off you are

Yes over stocking Africans can reduce aggression. Two filters is probably a good idea since cichlids can have a high bio load. Clean one filter every other month.

You're gunna be getting about 720 GPH filtered, that's pretty good. Just make sure it's not blowing them around the tank lol.
